JOSEPH LOUIS CROCKETT was born on 9 Jan 1676 in DONEGAL, BANTRY BAY, KENMORE, KERRY, IRELAND. He died (VA). JOSEPH LOUIS CROCKETT, After the death of King Louis XIV of France, in 1715, Joseph left Ireland and revisited France. Such was the hatred against all Protestants and persons who had changed their religion, that Joseph (whose family had become Protestants) gathered up all his friends and family in France and took them to America, where they settled in the French Colony of New Rochelle, in the Colony of New York. At New Rochelle was born William D. Crockett, the first child of American birth to Joseph and Sarah.

The other members of Joseph's extended family, who were still living in Ireland, and who were presumably also Protestants living in the midst of Catholics, soon left Ireland and settled in the Colony of Virginia, in 1716, 1718, and 1719. In 1718, John Crockett, son of Joseph Louis CROCKETT, Sr., removed from New Rochelle and settled on the Rapidan River, in present-day Madison Co., VA, among the families of FONTAINE, MAUREY, and GUERANTS, other emigrants of French extraction (via Ireland and Scotland).

The above was transcribed from papers written by Samuel M. Duncan. (Although it is unclear exactly how Samuel was related to the Crockett family [Samuel's family originated in Scotland], members of his family evidently eventually married into descendants of the Crockett family. Samuel's emigrant ancestor arrived in Virginia in 1722.)

Joseph was born in County Donegal, Ireland 1676.

He married Sarah Steward in Ireland. Sarah was born about 1676. Sarah was the daughter of Thomas Steward.

Joseph participated in the emigration event 1708 in America.

Because of religious persecution against the French Hugunots, the Crocketagne family moved to Ireland where Joseph and all but one (the eldest) of his siblings were born. Joseph Louis immigrated to the United States between 1715 - 1717 (first to Pennsyvania and later to Virginia). Here he Americanized his name from Crocketagne to Crockett.

(This is probably the same Joseph Crockett who owned 450 acres on the South Fork of Indian River.)
